Dear Pat Neill
Thank you for offering to look up a marriage date if you are contacted. I
have just found your site tonight. I am looking for the marriage of Andrew
Kelly
to a Mary ? in about 1846-52. The date is a guess. They are my
ancestors who were from Ireland, but lived on Athol Street in Liverpool in
1881.
I found two Andrew Kelly on the marriage list for R.C. churches. Please look
up the date for Andrew Kelly, spouse Maria Ford under "Pat". The transcriber
was Marie McQuade. Thank you.
Janice

subject: Sacred Heart church, Hall Lane, Liverpool

Please do you know of any sites where I can look up the history of Sacred Heart Church, Hall Lane, Liverpool.
We were married there 35 years ago,,and I am trying to put together a little something as a surprise for my husband.
Yours most Sincerely,
Mrs P.M. Dunne.

PS. Do you know of St. Bede's, High church, C of E. It used to be near the bottom of Fern Grove, Lodge Lane, when I was about 5/6.(1958/59.

Answer sent Wednesday 7th February 2007

Patricia,

Here is a short history from 'The Churches of Liverpool' by David Lewis:

The Roman Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart

This sandstone building, blackened by decades of soot, stands on the
corner of Hall Lane and Kensington. It was opened in 1886 after the
local Catholics had worshipped for ten years in the chapel of the
convent which stood on Mount Vernon Street, now swallowed up by
the Royal Liverpool Hospital. Sacred Heart was designed by the
architectural firm of Goldie, Child & Goldie, although two other firms
who did much work for the Catholic Church were later involved;
Pugin & Pugin did some alterations in the 1890s and Sinnott, Powell
& Sinnott designed a 'substantial and elegant' church hall in 1894.
Sacred Heart is a large church of rough yellow sandstone blocks, with
red sandstone dressings, in the Decorated style of Gothic. The most
interesting view of the church is from Mount Vernon Street, now a
private street running through the hospital grounds. From street level
a walkway steps up to a small Gothic porch beneath a huge window
and a slim lantern tower breaks the symmetry; it is a pity that this
entrance is now closed and very overgrown. Fronting Hall Lane the
church has a small Calvary, a depiction in stone of the Crucifixion,
more usually seen outside churches in Brittany.

I will see if I can get some pictures taken of the church and get back to you.

I don't know about St Bede's, but if you contact the Liverpool Record Office, they may assist:

Hello Pat,
You recently did some successful research for my cousin Mike Healy and
he passed on your name to me.

I am trying to find out where my g.father James Sarsfield is buried. It
is likely he is in Ford because he was born RC but I believe he may have
lapsed later in life. His details are:

Name: James Thomas Francis Sarsfield (note: neither Thomas nor Francis
appear on his birth cert, but Thomas is on his own marriage cert and
Francis is on the marriage certs of 2 of his sons).

Born: 10th September 1865 in Dublin, Ireland.
Died: June qtr, 1939, aged 74.

Home address at death: 29 Gayhurst Crescent, West Derby, but I am not
sure if he died there.

I would be happy to make a donation to the charity you specify.
Regards,

Brian Sarsfield

Answer sent Wednesday 7th February 2007

Brian,

I did not find one Sarsfield in the Liverpool RC Burial Index for the year 1939, there were some for 1938.

You could try; Bob Halliday  <halliday.b?merseymail.com>, he does a search service for Anfield Cemetery.

No donation required.

subject Irish ancestors

Many thanks for all the useful information on your website.
I wondered if there is any way of finding out about our ancestors before they came to Liverpool.
My GGG Grandparents, James and Catharine Graley (nee Griffiths) came to Liverpool some time in the 1830s. This is a guess as the census for 1851 (where their name is transcribed wrongly) shows their children as born in Liverpool - the first in 1837. (I cannot find them though on the 1841)
Their birth place is simply recorded as Ireland.
Is there any way of finding out where in Ireland they came from? Is it possible to find out any more about them?
Any advice you can give would be gratefully received.
Many thanks,
Jill Cavan

Answer sent Saturday 17th February 2007

Jill,

This is a very difficult time period for tracing Irish ancestors. Check out all the baptisms and any family marriages. If they used St Patrick's church Park Lane, you may be in luck, as there are lots of Irish addresses mention in it's registers. You also need to check the Census' for 1861, 1871, 1881... Sometimes people give a birth place on at least one census...

subject Patrick McCormick - Liverpool Area Cemetery Search

Hello Pat,

Please could I trouble you to look up the burial of Patrick McCormick (or McCormack) after 1860. Ford is most likely I guess as I think his wife Catherine McCormick was buried there (5 Dec 1861 Plot 44 Section X Public, aged 50 years).

I cannot be sure of death date, but the family lived in Kew Street, Liverpool according to the 1851 and 1861 census.

According to same census info, Patrick was born in Ireland either around 1803 or as late as 1811. The 1861 census gives his (and her) age as 50, so they were obviously both alive on Census night.

Hope this is enough to go on. I will happily make a donation to CAFOD whether or not you can turn anything up for me. Thank you for providing such a helpful service.

Thanks very much.

Dear sir.
I note in the web site that you would be willing to search burial records on microfiche in return for a donation to CAFOD. I think this is a noble offer, and I would like to take you up on it. My father had an aunt and uncle who both died in Liverpool. I would think it was sometime between 1940 and 1955. His name was Michael Cummins and his sister was named Mary (or Minnie) Cummins (not married). I will be going to Liverpool for a couple of days in the next couple of months, and if their grave could be identified, I would love to visit it, and remake the connection lost so long ago.

Email me if this is possible for you to do.

Many thanks
Michael Cummins

 

Dear Pat
I emailed you just in the last few minutes with a request for information on Michael and Mary Cummins. I may have left out some information you need
Both are probably in the same plot, as they lived together
Both would be about 60 to 75 years old at death
Both are Irish, born in Cork

I am after details of my Grandfather, Richard McCaffrey (it may have been misspell i.e. McCaffery), the date of his burial was 4 January 1934. If you agree, I would prefer to send a donation to Medecins sans Frontiers as they always seem to be the first organisation to provide help in disaster areas.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards

If you can't get to the grave, I could ask my son (Jonathan)  if he could check for a headstone for you. He charges £2.50 to email pictures of any headstone found.
Or £4.00 to post an A4 picture of a headstone.
No charge if no headstone found.

Dear Ron
I have just been looking through your website and found it fascinating. My
Gt Grandmother lived at 13 Gordon Street and I have memories of visiting
her as a child. Her name was Janie Valentine Smith. I was heartened to see
the church in such a wonderful state when I visited Liverpool last week.
Unfortunately I don't have any photographs but I do remember the house and
how very simple it was with a sort of Tarpaulin as the kitchen. I am
currently researching my family tree so will no doubt be emailing you
again.

Dear Ron

Sorry to bother you again my Gt Grandmother lived at 16 Gordon Street
Liverpool and their was St Chrysostoms. My Gt Grandmothers sister Annie
(unknown of surname nee Wilson) and Emily Peavley used to be active
members.

I live away in Ely Cambridgeshire but have family in Wallasey. I will look
all this up on my next visit.

On the other side of the family Jones/Connolly my Grandmother Alice Jones
was a cousin of Bill Dean (Patrick Connolly). I believe her Mother Hannah
Connolly
is buried in Anfield Cemetery in the Catholic section but I have
no other information.
